My neighbor and her daughter are closet CC addicts and I am posting this following a conversation we had the other night. The daughter is a rising 11th grader with great grades scores and ecs, even by CC standards. She's also very adventurous and likes to take the unbeaten path.
The subject of our discussion was the number of internationals who go to school in the U.S., and especially those seeking substantial financial aid. One of this girl's criteria is that she wants to go to a school with a large population of internationals because she wants the exposure to a global world and wants to make friends from across the continents.
All of this lead up to...what about US students who want to take their college years in a foreign university? She's not interested in England, she wants a completely different experience. Not a study abroad program, but as a regularly enrolled student. Is it possible for a US student to go to college in India or China or Korea or Sweden? What financial aid is available?
This girl would do it in a heartbeat if it is a possibility. Does anyone have any experience or advice?
